Mosaic Tile Mesh is 38.5 inches wide and sold by the foot in one continuous UNCUT piece. The mesh is made from woven fiberglass and is the same material factories use for pre-mounting ceramic tile for rapid installation in bathrooms. Artists use it in much the same way: Sit at your desk and glue your tiles to the mesh, allow the design to dry, then glue the whole piece to the wall. Most people cut the mesh into 1 ft x 1 ft piece and work in sections. Does this save time or effort? YES. IT IS MUCH EASIER TO GLUE TILE TO A HORIZONTAL PIECE OF MESH SITTING AT A TABLE THAN IT IS TO GLUE TILE TO A VERTICAL WALL. The mosaic tile mesh is flexible, cuts with ordinary scissors, and the spacing is small enough so that 3/8" tile can be glued to it. Most people use Weldbond. Make sure that you lay the mesh on a non-stick surface for gluing the tiles, or else you will glue everything to your table. Many people report that taping down wax paper or parchment paper works fine.
